Thanks Trish, all that I have learned since last night is amazing. The ability to go back and see and analyze my information for the past 3 months is Awesome. So glad I don't have to get info through anyone else but me. Now with a little more study I will understand all and hopefully be able help myself without having to go through my Dr, even though I love my Dr! Big Grin

Good to hear that you have adapted nicely, ASV can take some getting used to
AHI 0.5 is excellent result, anything at or below 5 considered good results

Median 0.3 L/m .. leak was at or below this number for 50% of the time
95th percentile 34.9 L/m ... leak was at or below this number for 95% of the time
Maximum 63.1 L/m ... leak was at or below this number for 5% of the time

Resmed define acceptable leak at 24 L/m and above 30 L/m, the data become unreliable. Not a problem, if Smiley face showing on the screen in the morning which I suspect he does (not sad face)
The numbers does not tell us the whole picture, the software leak graph shows leak variation during the night, might be some mouth leaks here and there and chinstrap may helps as you,re using nasal pillows

Zonk just got off the phone with my sleep care company and they are sending me a chin strap today! Thanks
